This is a new reproduction Lucas L494 reverse lamp. They were popular accessories for cars which did not come equipped with backup or reverse lamps. They were also popular as upgrades where a brighter reversing lamp was required. These lamps were sold as a factory option on the Triumph TR2 and TR3, and they look great on an MGA, MGB, Midget, Austin-Healey 100 or 3000 or Bugeye Sprite.
This reproduction lamp is beautifully made and mirror-plated and polished, a really superb part. The lens is correctly marked MADE IN ENGLAND in embossed letters on the bottom (although the G in ENGLAND is illegible on some lenses).
This lamp is also available with an original NOS Lucas lens featuring the genuine "Lucas" and "Made in England" stamps (as shown in the last photograph) for an additional $25.
We have original L494 lamps and lenses in stock as well, secondhand and NOS; some can be seen in Related Products below. We can supply correct illuminated switches for these lamps for $30 and up. Often we have lamps with red lenses. Contact us if you would like more choices, as we always have more lamps than we have time to list.
